    i wanted to install the latest tuch wiz on it, i do have it now, but its mod by the phone company im in, and i just want the normal latest tuch wiz on my phone.
    now there are millions of tutorials out there about how to do it, but i saw maybe 10 tutorial totally diffrent from each other, some say root, some say non root, and i have no idea what is rooted phone anyhows, so i not really sure what i need to do at all <:

    Normally you only get the newest version of TouchWiz by installing the latest ROM provided by Samsung. Don't know about these brew-versions floating around the net...
    Considering that you're relatively new to that Android stuff, I'd say you first read about the pros and contras of rooting your device. In about 98 to 99 percent of the cases you don't need root for your everyday business... It's also possible that you could break your phone by using it, so you should consider that too.

    I rooted my S3 and factory wiped and flashed a ROM which made a world of difference and got me to Android 4.2.2, which helped immensely with battery life. The last Verizon firmware update literally fried the battery, I was lucky to make it through a six-hour workday without it powering down. Now I leave with over 75% after 10 hours. I was able to also port most of the Samsung apps I used and liked, including S-Memo and S-Voice.
